Yesterday brought the most delightful cross section of customers. One customer en route to Phoenix popped in. She was buying glassybaby for her reunion with college pals. Why Phoenix?...why of course the Police 'revival' concert. Somehow this amusing visual entered my mind...throngs of my age mates at a Police concert holding up lit glassybaby rather than Bic lighters...desperate for an encore chanting..."Roxanne you don't have to put on the red light." Funny.
One really hip non-age mate came in. She was en route to New York City, choosing 4 glassybaby for her modernist friends. She was owing them a wedding gift, a year overdue (a girl after my heart.) She chose 4 slick white glassybaby, if I remember...Cream, Sheer Cream, Toffee and Beach. I bid her adieu..."Say Hi to the Big Apple for us."
Another darling customer came in for 3 Seattle Sunsets, graduation gifts for 3 young women off to out of state bastions of education. A little bit of Seattle to take with them...maybe to light an all-night paper writing session or perhaps early morning yoga
It is so great to see the flip flops in the store...the anticipatory faces of young kids just sprung from the school year, iced lattes. wedding rentals going out in unimaginably beautiful combinations. We welcome summer in all of its myriad glories.
Until Next Time...Nicola.
